Julie Chen returned to CBS Thursday night, and got ready to evict two houseguests, but what did she say about Les Moonves?
Double eviction episodes of the reality series are generally the most dramatic, but the biggest source of drama came from the final few moments when the host paid a stunning tribute to her embattled husband, Les Moonves.
“I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight,” she said to audiences as the second evictee of the night sat next to her.
Julie does not typically say "Moonves" on the series, usually referring to herself simply as "Julie Chen," so it was immediately evident it was a message of support for her husband, who was fired by the network earlier this week.
As for what went down in the world of Big Brother, let's get to it.
Sam and Haleigh were still on the block to be evicted from the house. Everyone at home knew fine well that Haleigh was going out.
But how did the votes pan out?
Tyler votes to evict: Haleigh
JC votes to evict: Haleigh Brett votes to evict: Haleigh
Angela votes to evict: Haleigh
Haleigh was evicted!
We then moved on to the HOH competition. It was the booth-style one with the houseguests answering questions based on video clips shown to the house.
Round 1: Sam & Tyler get a point
Round 2: JC gets a point
Round 3: Tyler & Brett get a point
Round 4: JC, Sam, Tyler, & Brett get a point
Round 5: Sam, Tyler, Angela, & Brett get a point
Round 6: Everyone gets a point
Round 7: Sam, Tyler, & Angela get a point
Tyler won the HOH competition and immediately got to work to pick who he was evicting. He held one-on-one meetings and told Brett to throw the POV because he was going to make a big move.
He moved on to nominate Sam and JC for eviction. Neither was impressed, but Tyler had a much bigger plan to play.
Angela won the power of veto, and she immediately met the others one by one. Tyler told her to use the veto on JC and that he would nominate Brett to be sent home.
It's not often a plan comes together in Big Brother, but it Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee got their wish and Brett was put on the block in JC's place.
JC votes to evict: Brett
Kaycee votes to evict: Brett
Angela votes to evict: Brett
Brett was sent out of the door by a vote of 3-0!
He was blindsided but admitted to Julie that he respected that it was a game move. Now he has to go to the jury house and explain to Haleigh why Angela and Kaycee's exit speeches threw him under the bus.
With less than two weeks left, Julie dished that there will be evictions on Wednesday and Thursday next week.
